An update on my to-do list!!!

Howdy ...

Below is my to do list from June 2nd ... I have actually got a few things done!!!! I have also added a few things to my list!!!

  1. DONE - Kristy's T-Shirt quilt
  2. Brown/Blue/Green/Red - brick road - needs to be quilted. I can't decide what kind of pattern to quilt on this one, that's why I haven't finished it yet.
  3. Cirlce one that I started last summer. I can't find material for the back of this quilt. I have the top done just need to find a back.
  4. Happy Go Lucky - This is the one from Crazy Mom Quilts Blog - I loved hers so I made my own version.
  5. Strip Maze - I bought this kit at our quilt show. This is a really easy strip piecing quilt to do. I got it from Prairie Chicks Quilting, Scrapbooking & Country Gifts. I bought the lap size but wanted the twin so Michael picked up a second kit for me. These ladies are great! I have 27 squares made ... I need 63 total!!!
  6. Bento Box - I bought a couple of jelly rolls and saw this pattern on Crazy Mom Quilts Blog. I got out some graph paper and made myself a pattern. I am strip piecing this one together. I am almost half done the top of this one. I have this one quilted (as of today). I have to run to Wal-Mart to pick up some material to make the binding. I hope to finish this one today!!!!
  7. DONE!!! IT IS STUFFED AND ON MY CHAIR!!! Flower pillow - Mom bought me this for my birthday. It's so cute! She picked it up for me at our quilt show. She got it from the Quilt Patch. I have it all cut out and just need to finish hand sewing the little message before I put it all together.
  8. Wall hanging for Grandma L - She really liked this wall hanging so I told her to buy the pattern and I would make it for her. She picked it up at our quilt show and got it from the Quilt Patch too. At this same time my Mom bought a welcome sign. I got to make that too. She said that is was a good deal for her ... she buys the pattern, I make it!
  9. I bought a triangle ruler and I want to use it to make a quilt with too. It is awesome to work with. I have played around with it and it makes perfect squares!
OK ... so I haven't done very much on my to do list!!! I did finish these:

This is a pillow that Mom got me for Christmas while I was teaching in Taiwan!!!

This is the pattern "Turning Twenty". All you need for the top is 20 fat quarters. This was the first full size quilt top I ever made. I got done quilting it on Friday. I am giving it to Margot and Steve. They got married on 10/10/10!!!

There are a few more things to add to the to do list ... that will take more time than I have right now ... the ladies will be here for tea in 20 mins ...

Happy Quilting!
